Sweet and airy and pleasantly nostalgic, Jason Priestley's first starring vehicle is cotton-candy entertainment for summer's end.

As such, it's a cute picture; if you were looking for the ideal word to describe Calendar Girl, it might be watchable.

Can't we just agree to let Marilyn Monroe rest in peace?

On film, the story's charm fades fast.

The film revives the voyeuristic smarminess of early-'80s spring-break comedies, only now it's passed off as soulful nostalgia.

Masquerading as a wild romantic adventure, Calendar Girl is actually a dull, sanctimonious morality tale about the meaning of friendship and manhood in the manner of James Dean's melodramas.

Audience Reviews for Calendar Girl

In "Calendar Girl," Roy (Jason Priestley) and a couple of his friends go on a wild goosechase when they find who they think is the real Marilyn Monroe. The three have always had a crush on Marilyn Monroe since they were kids and now they will do anything to meet her in person. However, they have some enemies who they must stay away from while they try to catch Marilyn.
"Calendar Girl" isn't a good movie. The reason I didn't like it is because it gets old just watching the three chase Marilyn Monroe the whole movie and mainly because the movie doesn't have good acting. Even the bad guys in the movie are unconvincing as the villains who try to get in Roy's way. I wouldn't recommend watching "Calendar Girl" unless you're real bored and there's nothing else on Tv. When the most memorable part of a movie is a nude scene and people only remember the movie by name because they skip forward to the nude beach scene to check out your buck naked butt, that's never a sign of a good movie. Stick to TV shows, Jason
